LOS ANGELES, July 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- De La Cuenta Films announced the launch of a campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds for director Ken Rosen's documentary "Cuba in Transition." The 60-minute film is a colorful portrait of life in Cuba, with intimate conversations about the trade embargo and the changing relationship with the U.S.
(The Kickstarter campaign for "Cuba in Transition" is at www.kickstarter.com/projects/1842546989/cuba-in-transition).
The film follows the lives of four ordinary Cubans with candid interviews shot during a 15 year period. The goal of the Kickstarter campaign is to raise funds to finish the project with additional interviews and footage as diplomatic ties between the U.S. and Cuba are restored. The campaign will run through August 4, 2015.
"I fell in love with Cuba when I visited as a tourist in 1998," Rosen said about the film. "I wanted to understand what it was like to live under an economic embargo from the most powerful country in the world, while living so close to it and having such close ties."
Rosen decided to make the film because he felt that Cuba was often misrepresented in the media and he wanted to "create the possibility for real Cubans to tell their story and for Americans and the world to hear it."
"Cuba in Transition" is produced by Rosen, Mimi Fuenzalida and Michelle Fiordaliso. Fuenzalida is also the film's Director of Photography and Alonso Llosa serves as its Editor. The project was initially funded by Rosen.
Rosen's previous producing credits include the independent feature length documentary, "Rubber Tramps," which was distributed by 7th Art Releasing. He also served as a Story Editor at Phoenix Pictures and began his career as an Executive Assistant to producer Mark Gordon and as an Assistant Producer at HBO Films.
